What is a Subcontract? Any agreement (other than one involving an employer-employee relationship) entered into by a Government prime contractor or subcontractor calling for supplies and/or services required for performance of the contract, contract modification or subcontract. (FAR )
DoD Subcontracting Program Contracts greater than the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (applies to SB and OTSB) –“Maximum practicable opportunity” to participate consistent with efficient contract performance –Clause at FAR –N/A when— Personal Services Performance Entirely Outside the U.S…. (FAR )
DoD Subcontracting Program Subcontracting Plan Requirements Clause at FAR (applies to OTSB) Acquisition greater than $550K ($1M for construction) –With Subcontracting Possibilities –Submit Acceptable Plan or Ineligible for Award Multi-Year Contracts / Contract With Options –Cumulative Value of Basic Contract + All Options considered in determining if a plan is necessary –If Individual Plan : Separate Goals for Basic + Each Option
DoD Subcontracting Program Subcontracting Plan NOT required? From SB For personal services contracts For contracts/mods to be performed entirely outside the US & outlying areas For mods within the general scope that do not contain “Utilization of Small Business Concerns” clause (or prior clauses for contracts awarded before PL )
Types of Plans Individual – 1 contract, 1 plan – Covers the entire contract period (incl. options) – Goals support the contract – Indirect costs allocated on a pro-rated basis Master Plan – Boiler plate info – individual plan minus goals – Continue to do contract by contract “goals” – Effective for 3 Years – Plant/Division Basis – Needs pre approval by the Contracting Officer
Types of Plans Commercial Plan – Preferred for commercial items – Based on Contractor’s FY – Applies to the entire production of commercial items – Plant/Division Basis – Annual Plan Applies to all government contracts in effect during that period – Who approves? 1 st CO awarding a contract during contractor’s FY; or For on-going contracts with commercial plans to CO w/contract w/latest completion date 30 days prior to end of FY –Contractor responsible to provide name of CO who negotiated the plan and provide a copy of the plan to each CO with open contracts.
Types of Plans DoD Test (Comp. Test or CSP) “Test Program for Negotiation of Comprehensive SB Subcontracting Plans” – NOT a type of Plan, per se – Very similar to a commercial plan – Plant/Division/Corporate basis – Annual Plan Applies to all DoD contracts in effect during the period – DCMA delegated Plan negotiation and review functions
Subcontracting Plan Goals Small Business SDB WOSB HUBZone SB VOSB SDVOSB 11 Mandatory Elements Based On: Total $ To Be Subcontracted Total $ To Be Subcontracted $ and % of Subcontract Dollars To Each SB Category
Subcontracting Plan Reporting Type of Plan Individual Master Commercial DoD Comp Test Type / Frequency of Report ISR / SF 294 – semiannual * SSR / SF 295 – semiannual ISR / SF 294 – semiannual SSR / SF 295 – semiannual SSR / SF295 – annual SSR / SF semiannual ** * ISR = Individual Subcontract Report SSR = Summary Subcontract Report ** DCMA is getting quarterly data in some cases
Subcontracting Performance Things to Consider How do you develop your goals? – Market Research – Defined Process Are you meeting your goals? How to Improve Performance? – Strategy – Initiatives

Toolbox DoD Mentor-Protégé Program
DoD MPP - Background Established on November 5, 1990 (Public Law ) Concerns raised by DoD prime contractors, that many SDBs did not possess the technical capabilities to perform DoD subcontract requirements. Extended through 2010 for new agreements.
DoD MPP - Background DoD MPP seeks to encourage major DoD prime contractors (mentors) to develop the technical and business capabilities of eligible protégés Goal: Assist protégés to compete successfully for prime contract and subcontract awards Successful Mentor-Protégé agreements provide a winning relationship for the Mentor, Protégé, and DoD Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), Appendix I, provides regulatory guidance for the DoD Mentor-Protégé Program.
Types of Agreements Reimbursable Agreements Provides monetary reimbursement for the cost of developmental assistance incurred by the mentor firm provided to a protégé firm in accordance with the approved agreement Credit Agreements Allows a mentor to receive credit toward subcontracting goals for costs incurred, see DFARS Appendix I-110
Eligibility as a Mentor At least one active approved subcontracting plan (FAR ) Be eligible for the award of Federal contracts Demonstrate the capability to assist in the development of protégé firms Approved to participate as a mentor in accordance with DFARS Appendix I-105 Graduated 8(a) firm that provides documentation of its ability to serve as mentor A Mentor May Have More Than 1 Protégé !
Eligibility as a Protégé SDB Business entities owned/controlled by an Indian Tribe, Native Hawaiian or Native Alaskan WOSB HUBZone SB SDVOSB Qualified organization employing the severely disabled Be eligible for award of federal contracts A Protégé may have only 1 Approved Active DoD MPP Agreement

Department of Energy (DoE) MPP also applies to Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other minority institutions of higher learning. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Mentors can earn award fees for their performance on contracts with award fee incentives
Federal Agency Programs Department of Treasury (Treasury) MPP is implemented in 3 phases. 8(a) firms as protégés on Treasury contracts, prime contractors as mentors to small businesses, and HUBZone and Service Disabled Veterans. Mentor may receive a non-monetary award for providing exceptional developmental assistance to protégé. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Mentors may receive additional evaluation points and credit toward subcontracting goals and procurements may be set-aside for MPP.
